I’m cured!

… And I don’t say that lightly. I have a long list of mental illnesses, but one of them just got crossed off the list. Holy flip. I think I might have misdiagnosed it. My official diagnoses are schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type; and pure-O (obsessive-compulsive disorder without compulsions). I doubt anyone who knows me wouldContinue reading “I’m cured!”

My inner lawyer wants to eat these dog owners for breakfast.

Dear Annie: I live in Texas in a small neighborhood and am still relatively new to this area. Two years ago, a traumatic event happened to me not long after I’d moved in.

Whenever there is a family function, my fertility is brought up, andContinue reading “Pregnancy, PTSD, and careers.”

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: So I got a phone recently and I don’t know if it’s the problem of the situation I’m snot to describe to you. I am an A student. Recently I failed two tests.
